Dreamgirls at Signature Theatre in Arlington

November 13, 2012 – January 6, 2013
Arlington VA

Love, Love Me Baby! The Tony Award®-Winning Musical Dreamgirls Lights Up Signature Theatre Stage.

The smash hit Broadway musical-turned-Oscar-winning motion picture Dreamgirls, captures the spirit and hope of Motown when a girl group makes it big in the 60s and 70s. In a business controlled by men, the female trio fights for recognition, fellowship and love as superstardom challenges their musical and cultural identity.

Dreamgirls begins a limited run at Arlington’s Signature Theatre on November 13. Featuring the unforgettable tunes “Dreamgirls,” “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going,” “One Night Only” and more. Led by local star Nova Y. Payton as big-voiced diva Effie White, the production is set to run through January 6, 2013.

A rich, glowing spectacle about the price of show-biz success, Dreamgirls sizzles with sparkling dance and R&B soul.


Starring Hairspray’s Nova Y. Payton as Effie.
